NOVOTEL Hydro Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur held a cocktail session for its media friends and hotel guests recently in conjunction with the KL International Buskers Festival.
The official hotel for the festival invited two buskers, Jeff Achtem and Pyromancer for a short performance.
Achtem or better know as Mr Bunk entertained the guests with his singing puppet Leroy.
The guests were awed by the way Bunk managed to control the puppet’s movements flawlessly according to the various kinds of music.
“Traditionally busking was only practiced by the people living on the streets for money but today it is different, we travel everywhere to perform,” said Achtem.
The Canadian also led his puppet Leroy to sing several popular numbers and performed a short moonwalk dance routine inspired by Michael Jackson.
Guests were later ushered to the main entrance of the hotel where it was Pyromancer’s turn to dazzle the crowd.
The fire artiste from Netherlands entertained the crowd with his antics and some dangerous moves.
“The event was held to entertain the media as well as our long stay guests and we felt it would be nice to showcase the buskers since they were all residing here,” said Novotel Hydro Majestic Hotel public relations, communications and branding manager Harriet Hoong.
